Re: damaged files - loss of objects

Just to have recommend some software that does a good job checking RAM, I put Memtest on that list.

Memtest can be downloaded as a stand alone bootable image, and it also ships with various Linux distros (the boot cd image).

Personally I prefer using Ultimate Boot CD, where Memtest is included.

Inkscape web page down ?

Hi forum.

When I try to navigate to http://inkscape.org/ - I get the "403 forbidden" in Firefox and "inkscape.org refused to connect" in Chromium.
I have not observed similar problems to other web pages.

Someone else experience the same ?

video too fast for me

I just had a look at the showcase for version 0.92 - maybee just me being slow, but - it goes way too fast to me for being able to follow.

Would love to see the same video with a speed adjustment :)

Re: If you could choose 1 thing that must be implemented or fixed in Inkscape 1.0, what would it be?

I beleive the answer for the question will heavilly depend on what each user do with Inkscape. I mostly use Inkscape for drawing schematics, and I always use layers. Top two most annoying bugs 1 : Sometimes object disappears when moving through multiple layers and one layer in the middle has visibil...

Re: Text - overwrite text contents fails [Windows 10]

Ok - I think I've found the one factor that makes Inkscape behave this way. Since I have a habit to comment "everyting"- I also often put comments, titles or labels on text objects too. So this is what I figured out: - For a newly created text object, Inkscape will probably behave normally...

Re: Problem with image borders when exporting

It is not an Inkscape issue. To obtain your goal, you can do one of either: - Increase DPI when exporting png (a multiple of 96 should gife best results if dealing with px) - Use Gimp - Make a new mask, and use existing alpha. When in edit mask mode, decrease colors to 2. That will give sharp edges,...

Re: Can I use Inkscape as an adapter?

Inkscape works best for svg files. There is a huge number of versions of dxf files and I wouldn't use Inkscape for that. For dxf files, use Librecad instead - it's sort of open source variant to Autocad.

Re: Opening DXF

The problem with dxf files is that there are so many versions. Even Librecad can only open some few variants - those that is initially created using a specific version of Autocad.

Because the "cat" isn't inside the canvas - it's located far left. To fix this - zoom out, unlock layers, move all objects into canvas.

I'm not able to copy from Calc to Incscape as vector - it paste as raster image. I use Libre Office version 5.1.6.2, may that be too old for supporting this?

Re: Why does my Inkscape file display differently when I save as PDF?

Hard to say without the actual .svg file. Possible due to a gradient opacity, I believe PDF doesn't support that.

Have you tried to see if LibreCAD support svg import? Anyway, I've seen plenty of dwg files created in autocad, and none of them holds any actuall readable text (but lines that looks like text). You may check if there is a limitation of the dwg format. If not I assume the problem lies within the sof...

Re: Automatizate operations, connect circles with line

Don't know about scripting so what I says here is just guessing:

I heard that you can manipulate an svg using javascript in web browsers. However I do not know if you're able to save the modified svg back to a static svg file on disk.
